Advice on buying WR250R/X

Hello, I'm in the market to buy a WR250R or X. I'm looking for advice as far as what to get. I originally planned on buying a new WRR from a dealer but recently started considering a couple used WRXs in the local area. Buying used would cost around $4700 plus taxes. If I bought new I was planning on going to every dealer in my location (SoCal) and offering between $6500-$7000 out the door for a 2012 WRR with gear. I have read of a lot of people getting them for around $6200-$6300 out the door. I'm guessing that gear has a mark up of 30% or more so I expect that the dealers would be more willing to work with how much gear I can get rather than lowering the price of the bike. There are three dealers in my area I would consider. One dealer has their sticker price for $5500, another for $6000, and the last for $6500. It's 2013 and not riding season so I imagine they would like to move out old stock and get a sale. Of course these prices don't include all the ridiculous hidden prices, but do you think they would be willing to go for OTD $6500 to $7000 with around $1000 worth of gear?(helmet, gloves, boots, etc..). Giving me $1000 worth of gear with an average of 40% markup would be like them discounting the bike $600. So it would be $6400 OTD if I paid 7. Does this sound right? I plan on doing mostly street riding, but also want to rip up some trails and do love the look of the WRX. Any advice from some experienced folks? Thanks!
